⭐️⭐️⭐️ A typical market with breads, fruits, meats, tortillas, plastic wear, clothes, Mezcal, purses, Mexican wear, and all things in between. The largest market in Oaxaca by far! Always a colorful experience that lets you use your five senses.

This market is probably the best place to eat and see what a Mexican market is. The food is delicious!! but not for picky eaters. Anything from grasshoppers, worms and meat to mole.
